With the most robust satellite connectivity network in service, Intelsat offers reliable internet access for everyone, every device onboard from IoT applications and 24-hour location and weather tracking to video streaming and web browsing.

Passenger Ships

Passenger and cruise ship operators are focused on providing an excellent customer experience for those onboard. And as bandwidth consumption increases, stable internet service is no longer a luxury — it’s a necessity. With Intelsat global, Ku-band, HTS connectivity solutions, cruise operators provide guests onboard with mobile internet access needed for streaming, video, web browsing and social media. In fact, 90% of the connectivity services available for cruise passengers and crew rely on maritime satellite communications, making high-speed connectivity more vital than ever.

Fishing

Fishing vessels not only have schedules to keep and requirements to comply with country-specific market regulations, but they must also meet safety regulations to ensure the welfare of the crew onboard. To automate and optimise operations, fishing vessels are relying on maritime VSAT providers to obtain reliable connectivity. Intelsat gives these ships the reliable broadband they need to support cloud-based, mission-critical applications to improve operations.

Offshore Rigs

Oil rigs need access to reliable, secure connectivity to operate with greater efficiency offshore and stay in contact with onshore operations. Intelsat offers the only connectivity solution that leverages the strength and redundancy of a global, multi-layered Ku-band satellite network to provide high-speed maritime communications for offshore rigs. Rig operators can leverage Intelsat’s maritime satellite solutions to support mission-critical applications for offshore platforms, vessel operations and maintenance, integrate with onshore operations for real-time data management. HTS connectivity also enables the crew to stay in touch with friends and family, and. offshore rigs to comply with regulatory requirements.
